tell me whether a 64GB SD card can be used with the Lattitude D430. If so does it require any drivers or special set up - when ordering do I have to specify anything other than a standard card? As a matter of interest what is the largest SD card that can be used with the D430.
Right i try switch the D430 its powers on the 3 leds all come on also the power led and hdd led
then before i get a screen or bios it dies (about 3 seconds) can power it back up but same happens ive removed everything i can to just run the bare bones no wifi no BT
when i take the hdd out the led doesnt show when i power up so the board knows its missing ive added some ddr to see if it was the onboard ram still no joy tried pressing F2 and power to get a error code but nothing happens just powers off again
tried external monitor nothing tried litheum battery tested 3v tried without litheum battery tried with and without hdd Also tried with and without main battery just with ac adaptor
I have a dell D430 but the temprature is far too hot, dell could at least test their Ventilation system before releasing it, if i could add another fan or software to get around this. I have windows xp professional installed.
I am getting a hand me down Dell D430 (Latitude) but it coming with a dead hard drive.
Can you all please help me ind a replacement hard drive, or suggest some possible alternatives for me to use in this laptop. I know it takes a 1.8in PATA/IDE hard drive but I am having trouble finding any.
If you can suggest with a link a good hard drive for me to use.
I'm really curious about this. I own the latitude d430, and happen to have a mini9 64gb pci-e hard disk lying around.
For those of you familiar with the two laptops, the mini9 SSD's are a pci-e card, and the d430 happens to have two internal pci-e slots. As in one for wireless, and one for... well, wwan is what it's *for*, but I think you know where I'm going with this.
Anyways my SSD appears to be DOA (runcore model with usb interface, won't pick up on the usb, so I think it's dead) so I'm putting in an rma, but if that could be used as a hard disk in my d430,
I'd be absolutely extactic- even if I couldn't use it as the boot device, I've got the 40gb regular 1.8" hdd in here that could handle booting and then just run everything off the ssd, it'd be great. Lots of space, and lots of speed. (something like 70mb/s read and 40 write ....
I am looking to replace my aging 700m with either a Dell D420 or D430. The laptop is 90% for travel so I am mostly concerned about battery life. I'd like to make it cross country on one charge if possible.
I usually load up a bunch of DivX movies/TV shows on the drive and entertain myself on flights, etc. I do use it a bit for work on the road, but I'm not doing anything crazy so processing power is not much of a concern. Email, remote desktop, etc.
From those with either a D420 or D430, what kind of battery life can I expect from a 6 or 9 cell battery? I would prefer the 6 cell since it does not stick out, but 9 cell is ok since the machine is so small. I'm not opposed to taking a second battery as that is what I do with my 700m right now.
Which OS is going to yield more battery life? XP, Vista or 7?
I was getting ready to trash my d430. It was running XP and my SSD was so slow, painfully slow boot up, outlook loads, you name it.
I decided to try w7 and now it feels like a new computer. Boots up very quickly and my SSD is now running very fast, no hangups. Maybe it just needed an annual format and reload
I couldn't get a SDHC card to work with XP, nothing over 2gb. I tried an 8gb sdhc card and it also works. I'm going to get a 32gb class 6 card, I'll keep my fingers crossed that it works, and I will have 64gb of storage.
I think I'll hold onto this notebooks for awhile longer.
We've got 2 D430's in house and they are awesome. One of them just had the hard drive stop working and it was confirmed by swapping drives between the two systems. These have a 2.5" proprietary connection and Dell is telling me that there is no way to access the drive to potentially recover the data since its not a standard PATA interface. It's got some really small ribbon connector on the drive that hooks into a custom connection to the D430.
Does anyone have any ideas, or familiarity with how we can get access to this drive so we can run some utilities on it? Dell seems to be of little help here and the D430 simply doesn't recognize the drive at all. I'm not sure I would have bought these systems knowing that this was a potential issue.
I'm hoping there is some know interface that will allow the drive to hook into a standard PATA connection to recover data.
Just tried to use my SD reader on my D4300 which I have had almost 2 years. It was upgraded from Vista Business to Win 7. The SD Card reader is not recognized at all!I I rebooted to look at the config, and it is checked off in the configuration. I have gone back through the Dell drivers area and do not find anything specific for the SD reader....
I have a Latitude E6420 that came without a Bluetooth card. Is it possible to add the Dell TrueMobile 375 Bluetooth module to this machine? I looked in the Service Manual for the 6420 but it did not show where the Bluetooh moduel cable the plugged into the motherboard. In fact, I opened the case and found the slot where the Bluetooth module would be mounted but did not see a place to plug in the cable.
I have a Latitude E6410 with SD card reader. I can see the card reader in device management but the sd card will not apper as a drive in Windows 7. I tried the sd card on a colleagues laptop (exactly same spec and OS installation) and it works instantly.
I'm using laptop Latitude E 6510 with video card nVidida NVS 3100m. I have external monitor - HP LP2465, which I use when I'm working home.
Working of office jobs, I saw, that laptop become warm. I cheked the temperatures (Everest Ultimate, vers.4.50) and I saw, that video card is relatively worm - after several minutes temperatures of video card is about 130 F and soon reach up to 140-150 F. Then temperature stay in this limits.
I would like to know if such temperatures are normal. I bought cooling laptop pad, but it doesn't make real difference.
I have ordered E6400 but I have choosen Intel 5100 wifi card with two antenna port. I heard that this model isn't very good so I'm thinking about the upgrade to Intel 5300 with 3 antenna ports. I have a question about the antenna cables. How many cables are there near the wifi card in latitude with 5100? two or three? If there are only 2 cables, so the upgrade brings me no advantage.
Latitude E6500 and Precision M4400 were basically the same machine, the differences being the M4400's (obviously) different aesthetic on the lid, the more powerful GPU options, and a handful of other tweaks that I don't really remember the specifics of.
From what I can tell, the situation looks to be about the same this time around with the 15.6" Latitude E6510 vs. the 15.6" Precision M4500.
The Precision offers beefier GPU options and a 1600x900 sRGB LED display option, but I want the lower-power WLED 1080p display anyway so that's no loss
What is the maximum amount of system memory I can throw into my XPS16? I have 4 GB in there now, however I thought when I built mine I could go up to 8. The reason I ask is because the system manual that came with my machine states that it can max out only at 4 (2x 2GB).
Just received my new xps 15 touch 9530 and have been using it for about a week. I was starting up the laptop and plugged it in during the startup sequence because it was very low on battery. Ever since this the laptop will not reach its full brightness. When i use the function keys to adjust it the bottom half of the brightness bar does nothing meaning the max value is not reached. This also happens under power and control panel brightness options.
